    That’s a ridiculously low number. I hate beauty pageants. They make girls feel like their worth is solely based on their looks. Same with that god-awful Victoria Secret Angels show they do every year. Shitty quality lingerie paraded around by stick thin models all so some dudes can make a few bucks off of insecure girls. I can’t believe that this day in age we aren’t doing better than this.
